From Nelson Mandela’s “Long Walk to Freedom” and the rich multicultural heritage of the “Rainbow Nation” to stunning natural beauty and exotic wildlife, this 12-day, small-group travel program showcases southern Africa like no other. Enjoy Five-Star accommodations for two nights in Johannesburg, three nights in Cape Town in the legendary MOUNT NELSON HOTEL, two nights in Victoria Falls in the historic VICTORIA FALLS HOTEL in Zimbabwe, and two nights on Namibia’s Chobe River aboard the 28-passenger, all-suite M.S. ZAMBEZI QUEEN, a superior and sophisticated river vessel. Explore “a world in one country”—Johannesburg, “the City of Gold;” Mandela’s former home in Soweto; spectacular Table Mountain; historic Robben Island; and the Cape of Good Hope. From the unique perspective of covered excursion boats and from four-wheel-drive vehicles, enjoy unparalleled game-viewing and close encounters with elephant, hippo and antelope, not to mention spectacular opportunities to track crocodiles, birds and big cats. Visit thundering Victoria Falls, one of the world’s top natural wonders. Extend your safari experience with the Post-Program Option in the MalaMala Game Reserve bordering Kruger National Park.
